Toffee Love -

I’m such a box of choccies
Who knows what you’ll get
When you take your first bite
Am I heaven or regret?
Minefield of deadly centres
None of them taste right
My psyche holds the answer
And she’s damn well holding tight
She says it’s my journey
To find buried delight
Oh stars above
Toffee love
Heart bending
Sticky ending
Toffee love
I’m digging deep inside me
To find the right one
I meditate forever
But nothing comes
I’m no strawberry cream
Far too sickly sweet
No peanut brittle either
All harsh and indiscreet
But chewy screwy caramel
Sounds a lot like me
I’d be proud to have a toffee heart
And hold you endlessly
Gooey strong and stretchy
I am toffee I will last
Way beyond this moment
Beyond a sweetless past
I will make you speechless
No words get through
When I catch you in my sticky web
Nothing else will do
Cupid’s toffee arrow
Will shoot his sugar spike
So I become your favourite
In the choccie box of life
